    I have thru dvc points a 3 bedroom villa at animal kingdom, since there are 12 guests all from different families. Can individual families get the dining plan. All 12 don't want the plan.

    Welcome Home!

    WOW! I am really excited for you to experience the beauty of a 3-bedroom Grand Villa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas. Just wait until you step out on your lion-sized private balcony. It's breathtaking. 

    Thank you for joining us with your question about the Disney Dining Plan. Since it is selected by Villa, either your entire party would need to add this cost-saving benefit to your reservation or decide to forgo it. 

    There is another great way to stretch your vacation dollars available to Disney Vacation Club Members, Tables in Wonderland. For the current price of $150, you and up to 9 other Guests can enjoy substantial savings of up to 20% at most Table Service locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort. This savings includes alcoholic beverages! Your membership is valid for a full 13 months from the date of activation. So if you prefer to share meals at times, order appetizers frequently, or pass on dessert sometimes -yes, I have heard that some people do this though I have never seen it in real life- the this program could actually result in an even greater savings than the Disney Dining Plan. Plus, doesn't require a commitment of all 12 Guests in your Grand Villa. 

    I hope that helps as you plan your unforgettable vacation, Debbie!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
